MY MIDSUMMER MORNING

FOCUS: Walking

ADVISORY: Non sexual nudity

FILM SYNOPSIS: In 1935 a young Englishman named Laurie Lee arrived in Spain. He had never been overseas; had hardly even left the quiet village he grew up in. His idea was to walk through the country, earning money for food by playing a violin in bars and plazas. Nearly a century later, the book Laurie Lee wrote – As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning – inspired Alastair Humphreys to fall in love with Spain, the landscapes and the spirit and with Laurie’s style of travel. He traveled slow, lived simply, slept on hilltops, relished spontaneity and loved conversations with the different people he met along the hot and dusty road. This film is his journey.
